I just read about a four-year-old girl, McKenna May, who has spent half her life battling leukemia. The Make-A-Wish Foundation offered to fund her wish, a trip to Disney World. Unfortunately, they can only pay for the trip if both parents agree, and her idiot father didn't. He said that she wasn't "sick enough" to deserve it, despite the fact that she's gone though hell for the past two years and is still not in the clear. (One copy of the story here.)

Rather than tell McKenna what a dickwad her father is, they told her that the trip was just a little "delayed", and then her family and friends started fundraising so McKenna's mom could take her. (McKenna's parents aren't married.)

The story went viral--today apparently--and they've already exceded their fundraising goal. YAY! (The fundraising page is here.)
